Why stay here ...
Our small working sheep farm and CL site is situated in the beautiful south east Cornish countryside in an area of great landscape value. Ashdon Farm is south facing giving uninterrupted, panoramic views over our 100 acres of pasture meadows and woodland. The caravan site itself consists of one acre of land, partly sloping, which is closely mown with hard standing pitches and electric hook-ups (16A). Motor homes are welcome, as are pets. Battery charging is available.
We are located on the border between Cornwall and Devon, providing an ideal base to explore both counties. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers. Local National Trust properties include Cotehele House just ten minutes drive away, Antony House and Lanhydrock House. The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Mount Edgcumbe, The Garden House, Buckland Abbey, the home of Sir Francis Drake, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moors are easily reached.
The site is adjacent to our beautiful woodland and lakes which are available exclusively for the use and enjoyment of Club members. We have spent the past 25 years creating a natural wildlife haven around our ponds and lakes with plantings of azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons and conifers. In spring the woodland floor is carpeted with snowdrops, native daffodils and primroses followed by bluebells and red campion. For the avid bird watcher our resident wild birds include Kingfisher, Buzzard, Kestrel, Long tailed Tit, Tree-creeper, Nuthatch and Skylark to mention just a few.
An excellent country pub serves superb food within two miles in Pillaton village. Also on our doorstep is the world famous Jack Nicklaus designed course at St Mellion Golf and Country Club for those wishing to enjoy a challenging round on this picturesque 18 hole course which is one mile from our site.
Come and explore the beautiful Tamar Valley on our doorstep which has gained international recognition from UNESCO for specific mine sites, landscapes, towns and villages within Cornwall and West Devon. Morwellham Quay is a popular tourist destination offering a unique day out for all the family as featured on BBC's Edwardian Farm. Tavistock and Launceston are two traditional market towns that still maintain their individual charm and character offering many family run shops and restaurants.
The nearby maritime city of Plymouth offers an abundance of attractions including the National Marine Aquarium, the largest in the UK, on the historic Barbican. The pilgrim fathers set sail for America from the Mayflower Steps in 1620.

We have just spent a lovely week in this quiet corner of Cornwall, well away from the overcrowded beaches further west. It is a very peaceful spot with views of rolling fields and there are some lovely lesser known places to visit from here. The Rame peninsular has lovely views, Cawsand and Kingsand , and Dartmoor is only a short drive. The site itself is extremely well looked after and Mr and Mrs Lucas are very welcoming. Everything was made very easy and access is good.
